Mitt Romney Net Worth 2018: How Much Money Is Former Governor Worth?

Romney's chances of winning US Senate seat slim, says historical analysis

Former U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, speaking as a senior advisor for a conservative energy-oriented nonprofit group, welcomed 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney to the Utah U.S. Senate race Friday.

The 70-year-old Republican, who has been a vocal critic of the United States president, will run for Utah's senate seat after keeping a relatively low-profile since losing to Barack Obama in 2012.

"I think he's keeping out candidates that I think would be a better fit for Utah because, let's face it, Mitt Romney doesn't live here, his kids weren't born here, he doesn't shop here", the Utah Republican Party chairman, Rob Anderson, told The Salt Lake Tribune. While many recent Senate candidates have worked to make their campaigns well-known around the country, Romney would be happy to make this campaign as obscure as a local congressional race.

The feud between Romney and Trump ignited during the 2016 presidential election when the former presidential nominee took on Trump, calling him a "phony" and a "fraud".

The source said Romney, 70, will issue the video announcement on Friday morning.

The numbers are similar to how Utahns voted in the 2012 presidential election, when Romney received 72.6 percent of the vote over Barack Obama's 24.7 percent.

"Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington", he said.

However, following a scheduling conflict in 2014 - forcing the NFL to move its date back, the league took the Draft on the road. The cities of Cleveland and Canton were named as one of the top five finalists for NFL's premiere weekend.

While being an outspoken critic of Trump, Romney humiliated himself by applying for the Secretary of State job in the Trump administration, which he never got. And while Trump has been critical of immigration, Romney made a point to mention the topic in a positive light.

The Senate run comes after Romney flirted with joining the GOP presidential primary in 2016 amid Republican concerns about Trump becoming the front-runner.

Following the deadly shooting in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, in which 17 people were killed, Romney posted on Twitter that he was postponing his announcement.

"Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation", Romney tweeted, referring to allegations that the candidate preyed on teenage girls when he was a lawyer in his thirties.

In October, after McCain delivered an excoriation of Trump in Philadelphia, Romney lavished praise on the speech. The Utah Republican Party website continues to show Romney as the keynote speaker.

Romney may also be confronted by the pro-Trump, anti-establishment forces in the Republican Party that influenced decisions by Republican Party Senators Bob Corker of Tennessee and Jeff Flake of Arizona to retire after this year, although a Corker spokesman said he may reconsider.

With Bannon still in good graces with President Trump at that time, the episode further exposed the continued rift between Romney and the White House.
